I think you're talking about the valve rotators. If so, the purpose is to turn the valve slightly, every time it opens & closes.
This results in a kind of " self-cleaning " action, lessening the chances of a minute piece of carbon holding a valve open.
If it didn't rotate anymore, you may never see a problem.
